City Hall'er: Spreading thanks and wishing you a good Memorial Day weekend


Last updated 5/23/2019 at 9:36am

Summer is nearly upon us. Where does the time go? Memorial Day weekend is a special time for the Ritzville community, with the annual alumni celebrations, car show, concerts and Art in the Park.

It seems fitting that I send out an appreciation for those who have helped make this possible. First, Chad Hoeft and crew from Columbia Bank volunteered their time and resources to refurbish the planters downtown for the summer. They spent hours cleaning out and replacing needed potting soil and other things to prepare them for the businesses to maintain throughout the season. Thanks to you all for your efforts.

Secondly, the city public works crew has worked very hard in the parks but especially the cemetery in preparation for this weekend. They have all worked many hours to water, mow, trim and perform other functions to make visits pleasant for those friends and relatives of loved ones that are there. A special thanks goes to Wayne Marshall, who has worked for over a month to make your visit meaningful.

We at the city wish you all a good Memorial Day weekend and appreciate your visit to our fine community.
